School Library Journal - 05/05/2023 K-Gr 3—Using the template of "This is the House that Jack Built," Going demonstrates some of the ways that we are all interconnected: "The insects who fly nearby over the animals who graze on the fields beside the homes that shelter the people who share the planet where I live" then adds in birds, trees, clouds, the ocean, and ending with "every creature alive on each other depends—all on the planet where we live." The text is only part of the story. Frasier's bold, colorful, eclectic (occasionally surreal) illustrations bring the interconnections to a whole new level. Using her familiar style in a collage format with a mix of photos and paper cutouts across spreads, she visually brings the text to vibrant life. Using the image of a sunflower to represent the sun is priceless. VERDICT This is a look at how all Earth's flora and fauna (including humans) are dependent on the planet and one another. It is visually delightful and begs to be read aloud. Perfect for Earth Day and everyday.—Catherine Callegari - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
